Two of the World’s Best Stupid Comment Comebacks
This is for any of us who has been on the receiving end of an age-shaming barb. After I stopped laughing so hard, changed my undies for the second time today and wiped my eyes, here, then, from the immense wisdom of Those Who Comment:
Said to you by thoughtless male:
“I bet you used to be really pretty.”
“I bet you used to be able to see your toes.”
“I wish I had known you back in your day.”
“I wish I had known you before the comb-over.”

If you’re going to age-shame, folks, be ready for a rejoinder.
